Scalea, Calabria, Italy

Scalea

Cities and Towns in Calabria

Scalea has played an important role in Italy's history as both the stomping grounds of Latin philosophers and as a Byzantine port, where merchants from around the world came to trade their goods. 
 
Today, Scalea offers visitors a journey through time to that of the Byzantinian empire and to Magna Graecia.
 
The area in effect is a treasure trove of historical monuments from the Byzantine castle located at the height of Scalea's historical centre, to the "Talao" guarding post built by Turks on the sea.  All of the historical monuments and museums in Scalea are free of charge and travelers can explore them at leisure.

In addition to numerous monuments, make sure to ask about the whereabouts of the Byzantine mosaics, which visitors may have trouble locating by themselves.  Few travellers to Italy have ever seen the likes of these mosaics, but for those who have been privledged to see them leave with their mouths agape. 
 
In addition to the fascinating historical monuments and architecture, Scalea also offers visitors hundreds of acres of deserted beaches kissed by aqua marine waters, grottos, mountains, a hot climate and a proud and hospitable culture with an outstanding cuisine consisting of a variety of Calabrese seafood, pasta and meat dishes.  
 
 
Inland jaunts from Scalea to the surrounding mountain towns like Verbicaro and Orsomarso, will leave many people with the sense that they're not just visiting history - they are living it.

Client Testimonials

This company really knows their stuff and recommended our family to stay longer in each location. We didn't listen to them, but wished we had in every single place we went. They recommended Sestri Levante over the Cinque Terre which was our favourite destination on our entire trip. We visited Rome where we stayed in the outstanding Hotel Locorno where they know the owner there, like in every place we went. It made a difference in Italy when they knew who had arranged our trip, like they gave us special treatment or something.

We are planning on going back to Italy in 2020 and definitely having the IVS team organize everything!
